The Alchemist is very powerful indeed and has become lost in his experimentations. He seeks to change the forms of solids into liquids and liquids into solids. Who knows what could be possible if we could harness his power…

ON THE WHEREABOUTS OF THE LOST MYSTICS,
Prepared for his Most Honored Highness
By skekSil the Chamberlain[1]

UrTih was the urRu's Alchemist, and counterpart to skekTek the Scientist. He wore a bandana,[2] and his right front arm and leg were artificial limbs of wood.[3]

He was forever lost in his alchemical experiments, constantly seeking to change the forms of substances. He approached his work with humility, as he knew that he could never create anything that was nature's work.[4] UrTih ultimately never managed to merge with his Skeksis counterpart, having suffered an untimely death when skekTek fell to a fiery death in the Chamber of Life.[3]
